I told my tour manager that I needed a Doctor and that there was no way I was going to get through this on my own; that I thought it might be in my best interest to consider canceling the show. Now I rarely, if ever cancel show... The next hour is kinda blurry, but I woke up and David [Ellefson] was holding my hand and praying over me, and even Tom [Araya] and Dave [Lombardo] from Slayer came in to check on me, so I knew I was gonna be ok... when I woke up, they said that there was so many people outside of the venue still, that they could hold the show for 30 additional minutes, and I said, "Guys, I am ok, and we can do this." Club members can read Dave's entire update at the Megadeth Cyber Army.
